I have been over weight most of my life. Over the last 7 years I have been on a roller coaster, losing up to 15 lbs and then gaining that back within a year time frame. Plus, I have not been able to lose more then 15 lbs. For the last 6 weeks, I have been working with a personal trainer 2x a week, I walk 1.75 miles twice a week during my lunch and every day I walk just over a 1/2 mile to and from the train in order to go to work. Just recently I added in another day of jogging 1.5 miles on the treadmill at the gym. I make an effort to eat healthy but of course I will have one day a week where I might have a piece of cake, ice cream, french fries but most of the week I am sticking to protein, fruits and veggies and limit my bread intake to mornings. I've had my thyroid checked and all levels are fine.
Since I have been working out I have gained more then 10 lbs. I can see muscle forming and I know I am getting stronger but my waistline isn't getting smaller and my clothes don't feel different except they are getting tighter. Right now I am limited to what I can wear because my clothes are getting tighter.
I am frustrated and don't understand why I'm having such a hard time dropping weight. Any help would be greatly appreciatedd!!
